A Deeper Look in a Tropical Reef
Children have you ever wondered what a tropical reef looks like,
deep beneath the rolling waves of the sea?
If so, visit the website link below to watch a live stream of a tropical reef
(that’s a real camera underwater!).
Whilst watching, you could sketch some of the animals you can identify?
What shapes and patterns can you see on each creature?
Why not put your geographical knowledge to the test and have a go at some
fun geography based games?
I've attached a website link below to Games about World Geography - Good luck!

Technology in your Home
Children, this week, I would like you to go on a technology hunt in your home and record the different tools/devices of technology you have. You will probably be surprised to discover how much technology there is in a single room - and how in fact, technology is all around us!
You could draw an outline of your house and sketch the different rooms with the technology devices inside or you could make a list.
Extension: Create your very own 'Techno House!'
Design a house full of technology - where EVERYTHING can be done using only a button on a device - you could even invent your own new devices!
In my 'Techno House', I would love devices that can, make beds, fold washing and capture spiders!
